The Year of Future Nostalgia: Female Trends to WATCH for 2016
If you are keen on buying your other half a stylish new watch this Valentines, you first need to understand two key considerations. The first relates to your partner’s personality sense of style and demeanour which will influence the accessories that they use to accentuate their outfits. On top of this, you will also need to understand the watch design trends that are likely to take over in 2016, to make sure they fit in, yet stand out from the crowd this year.
3 Key Female Watch design Trends in 2016
With this in mind, here are three seminal watch design trends to look out for in 2016.
Embrace the Pastel Parade
As anyone who has seen the ladies Marc Jacobs watch range for 2016 can testify, the emergence of pastel coloured watch straps and accents is all the rage. From pale pinks to pallid yellow and duck egg blue, these soft shades offer a considerable diversity of colour and help consumers to accessorise their wardrobe more effectively. This trend will only gather momentum in the months ahead, as users demand brighter tones and a wider diversity of colour. This is perfect for the female market, where pastel coloured garments are also becoming increasingly popular.
Consider the Importance of Interchangeable Bands
Make no mistake; interchangeable bands are here to stay in the watch market. While these are diametrically opposed to the type of steel bands historically used on high-end watches, the advent of modular smartwatches has popularised interchangeable bands and encouraged traditional manufacturers to incorporate them. These bands also offer considerable diversity and cost-effectiveness to consumers, as they can utilise a number of variable options throughout the year without compromising on their budget or the aesthetic appeal of their attire.
Herald the Return of 1970’s Nostalgia
As a savvy consumer, you may well have noticed that there is something of a 1970’s revival taking place in the contemporary fashion market. This can easily be applied to modern-day watches, many of which feature brightly coloured and striped straps that hark back to a less restrictive age. Particularly popular on female watches, these bold and beautiful timepieces are iconic in their design, and enable fashion-conscious consumers to add to their ensemble in a relevant and nostalgic manner. There is a diverse array of colours available in today’s striped watches too, so you can also select a 70’s inspired watch that suits your existing wardrobe.
